Clunk and grinding engaging 1st gear

Out of the blue I took my 1299 out and now it hits hard when putting bike into first gear, then it started grinding bad before engaging. I adjusted my Crg clutch lever and seemed better for a little bit, but still engages hard and bangs so loud. Never like this before. The engine bike jumps when you engage 1st gear.
Funny thing is my Ducati dealer performed recall on clutch last summer and the clutch fluid is sooo black within 6 months of riding.

Sounds like you've got air in the line. I'd do a full flush & bleed, see if that fixes it, and then watch the fluid. If it turns black quickly again, you probably have an issue in the rigid line.
